The structure of a premixed methyl decanoate/oxygen/argon flame stabilized on a flatflame burner at atmospheric pressure was studied by molecular beam mass spectrometry. The results of the experiment are compared with the results of numerical simulations using two different mechanisms of chemical reactions proposed in the literature. The main intermediate combustion products of methyl decanoate were identified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Analysis of the primary stages of decomposition of methyl decanoate shows that reactions involving free radicals play a decisive role in its oxidation, which agrees well with the results of the experiments.
